Garrard damages Miami's hopes

MIAMI -- David Garrard scrambled to his right, reversed field, retreated and found himself 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage looking for an open receiver.

Even then, the Miami Dolphins failed to stop him.

As usual, Garrard did his best work on the run yesterday, throwing for 229 yards and two scores to help Jacksonville beat Miami, 24-10.

"We felt we had a chance to put the ball up and make some big plays," Garrard said. "I feel as long as I keep moving, I have a chance to find somebody open."

Jacksonville (7-5) earned only its second road win this year to remain in the thick of the AFC wild-card race.

Jacksonville ended a four-game winning streak by the Dolphins (5-7), likely ensuring they'll miss the playoffs for the fifth year in a row.
